So on the 3rd June 2016 we are getting Joakim down to The Yard in Hackney Wick, London. As a producer & DJ with a vivacious career, we are pretty excited about this. We first copped Joakim back in electro days…. but it’s his recent Dancing Is A Visible Action of Life mix series for Test Pressing, and his close hand skill at editing which has made us reconnect with the artist.
To explain a little bit about our choice of headliner, here’s a brief-but-dense look into his history in the Industry.
Joakim started releasing music around sixteen years ago. He formed Tigersushi in 2002 with a string of four ‘More G.D.M.’ releases featuring tracks from John Tejada, Maurice Fulton, Metro Area & Seven Grand Housing Authority AKA the legend Terrence Parker. This good taste has run a long way. Soon after he started releasing on Versatile Records, with release dates spanning 2003-2009.
Following on from that, he became prolifically busy, running not only Tigersushi but having a hand in the now famous Optimo Singles Club and pushing releases on a variety of sub labels like Pandamaki & Crowdspacer.
Then there is his work under alias’ as Cray76 and Jimi Bazzouka. Former name being the more techno leaning side of things, latter; great edits….
Good. So we hope you can come and party with us and Joakim, in London on Friday 3rd June. Now hear something from the same month in 2015, the incredibly catchy, made-for-summer edit of Black Bloods’ Muko Wapi.
